Brush Class

 

Defines objects used to fill the interiors of graphical shapes such as rectangles, ellipses, pies, polygons, and paths.

Namespace:   System.Drawing
Assembly:  System.Drawing (in System.Drawing.dll)


public abstract class Brush : MarshalByRefObject, ICloneable, 
	IDisposable

NameDescription
System_CAPS_protmethodBrush()

Initializes a new instance of the Brush class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodClone()

When overridden in a derived class, creates an exact copy of this Brush.

System_CAPS_pubmethodCreateObjRef(Type)

Creates an object that contains all the relevant information required to generate a proxy used to communicate with a remote object.(Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodDispose()

Releases all resources used by this Brush object.

System_CAPS_protmethodDispose(Boolean)

Releases the unmanaged resources used by the Brush and optionally releases the managed resources.

System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Overrides Object.Finalize().)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetLifetimeService()

Retrieves the current lifetime service object that controls the lifetime policy for this instance.(Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodInitializeLifetimeService()

Obtains a lifetime service object to control the lifetime policy for this instance.(Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone(Boolean)

Creates a shallow copy of the current MarshalByRefObject object.(Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)

System_CAPS_protmethodSetNativeBrush(IntPtr)

In a derived class, sets a reference to a GDI+ brush object.

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

This is an abstract base class and cannot be instantiated. To create a brush object, use classes derived from Brush, such as SolidBrush, TextureBrush, and LinearGradientBrush.

Notes to Inheritors:

When you inherit from the Brush class, you must override the Clone method.
